Driven Partridge Shooting

Fast and exhilarating, a fantastic bird to shoot

French Partridges along with Pheasants are the UK’s most hunted birds with the season commencing of September 1st through to 1st February.

The Red-Legged Partridge is not native to Britain and was introduced from Continental Europe around 1770. The Red- Legged Partridge are larger than our native English grey Partridge, it has a white chin and throat patch bordered with black. It has a greyish body with bold black flank stripes and a chestnut-sided tail.

Partridges are commonly found on lowland farmland in open areas and are traditionally flushed from hedges and cover crops. In flight partridges are very agile and with their rapid wing beat give the impression that they fly a lot faster than the Pheasant.


Whether it is the high curling Pheasant of North Yorkshire or the West Country or classic driven Partridges closer to London or up in the Scottish Borders we access to the best shooting available in the UK.
